ADDRESS ISPEXEC "DISPLAY PANEL(panel-id)", same as for any other panel.

Except for the fact that, in this case, the panel itself is probably useless.
"ISPEXEC SELECT PGM(ISRUDL) PARM(ISRUDLP) SCRNAME(DSLIST)"

might be more appropriate.

With this we can call those only panels which exist in same dataset.

Does work. Thank you.

Quite. But the TS didn't ask, "How can I execute the ISPF data set utility?", heesh asked, "How can I display an ISPF panel from Rexx?" Of course, there's always the chance that he would have figured out what heesh was doing wrong.

why do You want reinvent the wheel,
what is the value of duplicating the ISPF behavior

for proper behavior and portability You should use ONLY
the constructs defined as user interfaces and described in the ISPF manuals
invoking the ISRUDL program is not one of them
using the constructs found in the IBM/ISPF provided panels and not documented in the manuals
is usually counterproductive

start from the mother of all the manuals
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/ ... index.html
and navigate to the bookshelf for the zOS level You are using

Look at the source for panel ISRUTIL (ISPF option 3 menu). You can see how the sub-options are called.

You can also get many clues from looking at the ISPF command table. Use ISPF option 3.9 with application ID of ISP.
